The 7th Design Icons Amsterdam, one of the largest fairs in Europe dedicated to vintage furniture, will take place on April 6-7 at De Kromhouthal in the North of Amsterdam.
Vintage design is getting more and more popular: people like to add character to their homes, in an eco-friendly way. The items at Design Icons are usually 50 or 60 years old, they have a 'story' to tell. Besides that, people are attracted by the modern design of the furniture. The greatest icons were created in the 20th century: for example the Egg chair by Arne Jacobsen. Or the popular Eames shell chairs and the Red and Blue chair from Rietveld. It is the time of modernism: innovative furniture from well known designers as Braakman, Wegner, Bertoia, Mies van der Rohe and Panton. Design Icons participants have various specialisms: from Dutch to Italian, from subtle teak furniture to raw industrial, from famous icons to affordable vintage.
In a time where most vintage stores are online shops only, Design Icons offers a unique chance to see so many design collections in real life. The trade show offers the complete experience where you can have a close look at the furniture, try a sofa and have a personal chat with the professional about the history of a certain piece. All pieces shown on the stands are for sale.
